If anything the sagas that Peter Brock and Bob Jane's families did with the end result somewhat tarnishing the legacy of their fallen loved one is anything to go by, this is going to be one hell of a messy affair.

I am just not sure what is with these old dudes taking on much younger women and not leaving crystal clear wills in place?

Dementia can have a long period of effects before a diagnosis too, with hindsight my grandfather had some signs for at least 10 years before he was diagnosed.

Best wishes to Allan and those that care for him, it is gratifying to read that people are looking out for him.

Moffat had been with Sue since around 1983, and she is James' mother, who's around 35.

While younger than Moffat, there wouldn't be that bigger age gap between them.

Saw Allan on the Bathurst Sunday morning just when they were prepping for the drivers parade. He was sitting in the passenger's side of one of his Falcons. He looked happy to be in the car (got a friendly wave from him when I waved at the car) even though it was clear he wasn't 100% with it. (he was blowing kisses to people who he thought were there and trying to have a conversation to someone hanging out at the side of the car even though the was no one near the side of the Falcon and most of the window was up) Spoke to James for a few minutes after where I offered my sympathies to which he got a little emotional and said "At the very least, Dad is happy were he is, still know that his family, friends and fans love him, he's had a great run and such is the way life works out."

Im sure he has days that are better than others. I know from experience with my Father who suffered Alzheimer's . One day he would be relating to me about things we had done in family cars 40-50 years ago.... the very next day was not a good day as I heard him asking my Mother who the bloke sat on the lounge was (it was me). Within months he did not even know or recognise who my Mother was, his wife and constant companion of 65 years. Very sad and heartbreaking for family and those close.

Yeah, read Razors post last night and been thinking about Allan and how he is coping.

My wifes parents are both suffering similarly and its not been nice to watch.
Good days, bad days, but its those little moments and comments that can sting, like when dad is reminded that the lady over there is his wife. Wife? I didn't even know I was married! They are just over 90yo and been married for well over 60.

I hope AM's family are doing OK.
Moffat on the podium would have been a nice thing to see.....(Chaz! )

As others have said, there are good days and bad days. It's a horrible condition. From the look of it, he had a pretty good day.

Sorry to hear that EB. Seen family members suffer from it and to go from having deep and meaningful conversations to "Sorry, who are you?" is one of the worst feelings anyone can have.

From the looks of things, he's going OK considering. As James said, it's a tough and emotional time but Allan is safe, well and happy.

"it's a tough and emotional time but Allan is safe, well and happy. "

I did take the positives out of your post, in what James told you about Allan being happy where he is.

What made a few people a bit teary eyed was when he passed the convertible with Mostert and James sitting on top, Allan mouthed "I love you" when he saw his son

Interesting to see Allan in the small video for Tickford celebrating his Coke Mustang and the tribute livery the current Mustang has with his son co-driving it.
